Excellent pre theatre meal

Wanted an early meal to go to the theatre, so we rang to book. At the suggestion of the chef, we pre ordered our meals so he could have them ready for us when the restaurant opened at 6.30pm. On our arrival we were treated to two tasty and enjoyable meals. We found this a truly enjoyable... read more

After reading the great reviews on here, myself and 2 friends went here last friday and we were not disappointed. The food was superb. Being a vegetarian, i was very happy with the choice (4 mains to choose from, as opposed to 1 or 2 which you get in most places). I had the aubergine and it was delicious and... More

This is a small restaurant tucked away in Orford Yard opposite Debenhams. There is only space for around 30 covers, so it is cosy but not crowded. The restaurant had been recommended to me and we will definitely go back again - as will the friends we went with. The food was delicious, but we preferred the starters and mains... More

I have been eating at Chez Denis for a long time and always meets and exceeds my expectations. I took a friend here last Friday for the first time and she was suitably impressed, keep it going Denis!

Our visit to Chez Denis was definitely one of my best at any restaurant it would be unfair to compare it to just west indian restaurants as it is so much more.The variety of food was of high quality along with the service, my family and I drove from London and wasn't disappointed.

I am in a bit of a dilemma here. I have to say this was the most memorable dining experiences I have had in a long time. Food was exceptional, service was informal but spot on, atmosphere (it was a full house) was just how you would want it, the gentle hum of people enjoying the evening. With only 32(?)... More

We were lucky to have got a table but there was a last minute cancellation. A table over the weekend is a hard thing to come by -we discovered. This restaurant is a family affair. The charismatic head chef came out to great us and made excellent recommendations. His wife took our order and their son saw to the rest... More

Tucked away in quiet back alley, a stone's throw from the hurly burly of St. Stephen's Street, Chez Denis offers a menu full of Creole flavours redolent of the eponymous patron's French-Caribbean origins. Well cooked, presented and served in an intimate setting where - for once - conversation is not drowned out by unnecessary music. Highly recommended.
